9 p.m. update from Brian Wilkes: 

Quick update form the weather center: we are still in stand-by mode as storms continue to grow in coverage and intensity over northern Illinois. So far all forecasts are on track as storms formed they have produced tornadoes near DeKalb, IL

The coverage will increase and the storms will evolve into a large complex or cluster of storms that will race southeast late tonight.

I’m posting the latest hi-res forecast radar for 12 am and 2 am. (last two images). Indications of several ‘bowing’ lines of storms are forecast to race southeast late night. Wide-spread damaging wind gusts to 70 mph are likely followed by potential flash flooding.

Charge up cell phones and tablets. Have a NOAA weather radio and make sure there are plenty of batteries. Events like these often produce wide-spread power outages. More at 10 On Fox 59.
